I love preserving memories in photographs, it’s one of my favorite things to do. However, I’ve kind of gotten to a point where I just have TOO MANY bulky picture frames. Solution? Smaller picture frames! I had so much fun making these that I actually ended up with a ridiculous amount. But hey, what can ya do?
Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to let your loved ones know that you care about them. They can be your friends, siblings, and of course your significant other. What better way to say “I love you” with these heartfelt, thoughtful photo magnets. If you want to make them into a dual purpose (ornament and magnet) you can do that too!
In college, my first apartment’s refrigerator was adorned with a whiteboard in the shape of a speech bubble. I would rip pictures of various teen stars out of magazines and my roommates and I would use the speech bubble to comment on the ridiculousness of the photo or write silly notes to each other.
Since it’s Throwback Thursday and I’m getting all nostalgic, I thought I would share a similar DIY version of this idea that’s a little more chic, but just as much fun.
I was very into stickers as a kid. I didn’t use my stickers in crafts though, they were too precious to me, instead I collected and stored them in a large photo album and occasionally traded with my friends. Here are some crafts, toys and activities you can create while preserving these precious stickers.
Here’s a recycling craft perfect for any age. Grown ups can help transform the milk bottles and kids can use adhesives and stickers to give these upcycled elephants character.
Need a special gift for a graduate this month? Fridge Magnets make a great present. Collect images from magazines and specialize a set for friends. Of all of my handmade gifts these magnets get the best reaction.
I’m the type of person that puts absolutely everything on my refrigerator. Photos, To-Do Lists, Postcards, they all go up where I can enjoy them every day. I’m constantly using one magnet to hold up many pieces of paper until it falls off the fridge.
These cute little button frames kill two birds with one stone. They help display a few pictures, and they can be used to hold up all those little odds and ends I can’t let go of.
This holiday season I’ve decided to try my hand at making home made gifts for friends and family. Crafty gifts are always fun to give and receive, because they can be tailored specifically for each person. Plus, making presents by hand means that I will be able to afford to give presents to more people in my life, including co-workers, teachers etc. Here’s a list of some unique and beautiful gifts that aren’t too complicated to make at home.
These Herb Candles have a subtle, lovely scent. You can decorate the holders to match the herbs and style of the person you are making them for.
